Honestly, your reservation is YMMV until you actually are in the room. In this case, officially you don't get loyalty benefits when booking through 3rd party. If you add your loyalty number, you will sometimes get all or some of the benefits that typically accompany your status.

I've always done it at check-in and they thank me for being a gold member. Usually get the free water but upgrade is YMMV. I don't stay at hotels too often though.

Check in is the easiest time to add it. Usually will work for benefits.

My spin is usually that I would love to have booked  through the website direct... but I had a promo expiring etc.... they tend to be more accommodating that way...
